Acampcabin

This photo is part of the inspiration for this blog. When my mom was sick she bequeathed me all her memorabilia, of which she had tons, this surfaced. It survived many transcontinental moves and downsizings. This image was the last thing I ever expected to find in any of her posessions- a picture of Campmeeting! A bizarre link between my mom's southside and mine! Of course I remembered the West End cabin, but I had never related my mom with church camp, certainly not the place that was the repository of my most meaningful and spiritual memories. So- I am looking through my mom's high school annual (Joe Brown Rebel Laurate 1953) and in the ads I see this picture, which I instantly recognize as camp.
Needless to say, I would be overjoyed to have any ids or any Camp Smyrna memories.
